Wonderful welcome, attentive service and excellent food and wine !! The atmosphere was calm and relaxed, and although very busy the pleasant waiters made us feel we mattered to them. Will be returning on a regular basis. Thank you.

We tried our luck booking this short notice for a party of 9, which the restaurant accommodated. Very glad they did as the food was very good and fairly priced. Would go again without a doubt when passing Ballater again.

Staying in the area for 3 days but found this on our last night. Fantastic food and they coped so well with my wife's dietary requirements. Welcoming and humorous waiting staff made it totally enjoyable. You won't regret it.

Had a meal here whilst visiting the area. Went on a Saturday night,so was busy, but service was good. The decor is modern and light. The food was absolutely wonderful. The meat was tender and the flavours were great and portion sizes good. The menu had such a fantastic choice from traditional to some some more adventurous alternatives. We would... More
